Autism Testing

The first step in working with a family of a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is accurate diagnosis.  The diagnostic evaluation can provide great information that can be used to help with treatment and school recommendations.  A typical evaluation includes a diagnostic play session (using the gold-standard Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – 2nd Ed.), parent interview, intellectual testing, and adaptive behavior assessment.  A detailed report, including recommendations, is written and discussed with each family.
